At our house we have a saying that we used a lot over the years. "You are going to eat it, and you are going to like it" or "you are going to do it, and you are going to like it." Of course we always laughed when we said it, but it worked for us and helped our family to appreciate the simple things in life. It also rings true for my outlook on art.
Some artists have long philosophical explanations on why and how they create art. That's fine, but I'm just not that complicated.
I like the simple things in life.
